I'm going to give him to a friend who's going to care for him in better conditions.
If I just had the Betta I'm sure it would have been fine but the ammonia from the frogs and the fact that I was experimenting with tank heaters (so the temperature was going up and down for about 4 or 5 days) caused some receding and even a tiny hole. Seemingly the beginning of fin rot. I'm doing a salt treatment for him and he's regrowing fins but I'm sure if I put him back in the tank he'll just get bad again.
I was hoping that the tank would cycle because it's almost been 3 weeks but from what I've read small tanks don't ever truly cycle and there will almost always be ammonia spikes etc... He seemed really happy and still is very active BUT the fins don't lie.
Might attempt fish tank again in the future but whatever fish I decide to get I'll have a much larger tank and use stress zyme and prime.
I really like the idea of having a 50 gallon with a bunch of different mollies and platties and even some guppies. They look like mini bettas lol.
